James Bond meets Gator then boards The Titanic

Hi, Everyone,

Fabio Testi as Renzo is a handsome secret agent, more or less. His buddy, Dan, played by Assi Dayan is maybe cuter and cleverer. Helga is the girl who Fabio woos with a stolen salt shaker. She is played by Janet Agren who shows us her upper body endowment in some scenes.

Good scenes of the streets and canals of Venice or some other city with streets and canals. The boat chase is much like what we saw in Gator and Swamp Girl. The car chase scenes are done nicely but nowhere nearly as good as Bullitt or The French Connection. The foot chase scenes on rooftops and city streets are well done. The music throughout sucks.

Assi Dayan is the son of the famous Israeli General Moshe Dayan. Both Assi Dayan and Fabio Testi are still active in film-making. They both have likable personalities and nice faces with interesting accents. Think of Daffy and Donald Duck with better eyelashes.

The story is far more applicable to today's world than it was to the 1970s world of moviegoers. It has a plot that incorporates terrorists seeking nuclear weapons.

The bad guys look very bad. If you have ever found yourself annoyed with an organ grinder's music, there is one scene in this film you will enjoy.

An old cargo ship becomes a nice setting for target practice late in the movie. The bullets hit everything except the good guys.

With the two lead guys being so good looking at that time, the director was somehow not able to insert a scene that had any real sex appeal. Even when Fabio is in bed with a girl it does not become intimate or interesting. The director should have stuck to the acting and plot development and left the nudity and sex scenes for better directors. Blake Edwards could have found much better music. J. Daniel Cadinot could have done the buildup to the nude scenes.

Not a bad movie, especially in today's world.
